try to use mozilla, its a very good browser (and other browsers with mozilla engine)
btw msg to some microsoft enemys that posted here - im dont worship MS either... but MS IE isnt SO bad,... make a better browser and then say so.... im still preffer mozilla, but shit happens and 95% sites are made for MSIE... and MSIE has some things that mozilla doesent.... (i didnt say that mozilla doesent have a lot of good things that IE doesent)
Right. Some lousy web-designers don't even know that they should make their stuffs compatible with other browsers. (maybe they don't even know how to do it). But most of them are compatible nowadays. I rarely find the site not compatible with mozilla.
Well sadly there are reasons.... web development requires frequent cross browser compatability tests, and conversely some developers don't do this and some sites only work well on IE (i got stuck using IE to track a package on DHL's website the other day)
you can configure mozilla to spoof it's user agent so that the web sites think you are using IE. that's what i did, because in order to get into a site i go to frequently requires IE. (i have sent a complaint).
if you want details on how to do this i will post them here. that way you can use mozilla but still get into those sites. let me know.
Opera has a similar thing, it can spoof many browsers via a nice little button.
But please dont skew the counters as to how many linux browsers seem to be in use online. Any decent site is fully compatable with Mozilla, because Mozilla is standards compatable.
And it has decent built-in popup blocking, great cookie handling, and you can use tabs instead of many IE windows.
There's simply no reason not to allow other browsers. Security worries? Let the admin idiots read the source if they want, or ask them if they actually trust any Microsoft Update to honestly and flawlessly patch a hole in IE.
Distribution: Solaris 10, Solaris 8.0, Fedora Core 3
Looks like a qestion for a solution has turned into a debate over web browsers. Crossover can work although it isn't free. You can do it with wine. Here is a website that shows you how to install IE on wine along with other windows programs: http://www.frankscorner.org
Keep in mind, with wine you are running a program within a program so it moves kinda slow. You should give it a try and compare it to Mozilla 1.4 and determine what's better for you.
